May Favourites

The end of another month means another monthly favourites post!
There are some old favourites and some new favourites.
You can read the past favourites HERE

This month, I start with make up, then body care, skin care and non beauty favourites.
Let's dive right in!

Nars Matte Multiple in Laos

I used this almost daily at holiday and continued the love affair when I came home.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - Apricot
This is a limited edition Brick
but Bobbi Brown Bricks are generally gorgeous and I wish I could have all of them.
I love Benefit's Sunbeam but throughout May I have been grabbing this to go on top of my Nars blush and it just gives a hint of warmth and shimmer.
PLEASE go swatch it if you do not know how it looks like, this really is a worthy investment.

This month's favourite mascara is actually a drugstore one and it is famous for being a dupe (almost) to my HG mascara YSL BabyDoll!
Loreal Volume Million Lashes Extra Black
I love that this has a similar brush at a fraction of the price.
It is bigger, which means I do tend to get product all over my lids when I am not careful and it smells like Loreal mascaras smell.....
but it does the job and is so far my favourite drugstore mascara.

Soap & Glory Orangeasm

This is a beautiful shower gel.
Yes, beautiful.
It smells refreshing without being overpowering and I love using it in the morning but usually grab it for after the gym and even if I am showering in the evening or at night.
Needless to say, I am running very very low on this but I really love it.
Soap & Glory products are just hard to not love.

Caudalie Grape Water

I have a total of 3 of these and I keep going back for more.
Yes, I do have other waters in a spritz can, such as the omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist but at the price, I really use it sparingly and on special occasions, whereas the Caudalie is the one I grab and go.
I will be stocking up on this and it keeps making my monthly favourite list!

Nuxe reve de miel

It really was only a matter of time before I was using this and picking this over all else.I really love the matte teture and the smell is just so different to all my other lip balms.
I do have A TON but this is the one I have used the most!

I am also loving The Body Shop Nutriganics Night cream.
I like this and it just sinks in really nicely.
I am almost done with my tube as it feels really light and I am considering repurchasing because it works well for me.

Thankfully I finished up my The Body Shop Drops of Youth Serum and started my Vichy one which I bought at an Escentual Haul (you can read it HERE)

I love the texture of this and have been using this and loving it.
It is not clear like most serum and looks almost like a cream but sinks in nicely and just smells so nice.
Definitely a firm position in this month's favourites!

Sometimes you don't realise how much you love something until it is almost finished/finished.
Clarins Pink Clay Mask
This is by far my favourite deep cleansing mask.
I have another by REN Skincare and one by Avene but this is the one I always grab as a first port of call.
It is the most pricey but it won't break your bank at £22 for 50ml.
I plan to buy a few at the airport.

These are the few items I have been grabbing at the moment almost all the time.
Have any of these made it into your favourites?
